The process of identification, assessment and mitigation of risks is of strategic importance to supply chain profitability and continuity. Researchers have strived to propose diverse set of quantitative and qualitative models for supply chain risk management. Many of the strategies and approaches discussed in literature are based on relationship management. Collaboration, as a type of relationship, provides a better context for risk management and mitigation in supply chain. Although, the notion of collaborative relationships is highly advocated in the literature, nevertheless, no explication on collaboration-risk mitigation interaction has been identified. The framework presented in this paper is anticipated to conceptualise collaboration-risk mitigation interactions.
